Martin Scorsese made headlines a few days ago for his nasty remarks on Marvel movies, referring to them as "theme parks" and "not cinema." The Oscar-winning filmmaker had confessed to Empire magazine, "It isn’t the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being." Marty's recent film, The Irishman, starring Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, was screened at the British Film Institute’s London Film Festival and during a panel, the director mirrored his stance on Marvel films yet again.

According to the 76-year-old director, Marvel movies are a "different experience" where the "theatres become amusement parks." Furthermore, Martin had some advice to give theatre owners as he shared, "As I was saying earlier, it's not cinema, it’s something else. Whether you go for that or not, it is something else and we shouldn’t be invaded by it. And so that’s a big issue, and we need the theater owners to step up for that to allow theaters to show films that are narrative films."

"A narrative film can be one long take and three hours too, you know. It doesn't have to be a conventional beginning, middle and end," Scorsese added.

Jackson. "That's kind of like saying Bugs Bunny ain't funny. Films are films. You know, everybody doesn't like his stuff either. I mean, we happen to, but everybody doesn't," Samuel stated to Variety.
